The numbers: Initial jobless claims, a tool to measure U.S. layoffs, rose by 10,000 to 249,000 in the week ended Nov. 11. The number of applications hit a six-week high and exceeded the 235,000 estimate of economists polled by MarketWatch. The more stable monthly average of claims rose by 6,500 to 237,750, the government said Thursday. The number of people already collecting unemployment benefits, known as continuing claims, fell by 44,000 to 1.86 million.
The numbers: The import price index rose a mild 0.2% in October following large gains in the prior two months tied largely to the higher cost of oil. Excluding fuel, import prices also rose 0.2%, the government said. Over the past 12 months the increase in the import price index slowed to 2.5% in October from 2.7% in the prior month, the government said Thursday. If fuel is omitted, however, the increase in import prices over the past year rose to a five-and-a-half-year high of 1.4%.
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) - President Trump's son in law, Jared Kushner, has been asked by a Senate panel to turn over emails from 2016 about Wikileaks and documents about a "Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite." Democrat Diane Feinstein and Republican Charles Grassley are leading the Senate investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election. They are also seeking emails about Kushner's contact with former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
